10 10 UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT ADMISSION Ohio National University s undergraduate admission policy reflects the University s mission of providing professionally-oriented online educational programs at a price that makes quality education accessible and affordable for a globally diverse student population. Prospective students are encouraged to visit the University s website (http://www.on.franklin.edu), or contact the Ohio National Office of Admissions via at Individuals interested in admission to the University should complete the online application available on the website. UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS Applicants must satisfy all of the following requirements to be admitted as an Ohio National University undergraduate degree-seeking student: 1. $50 (USD) application fee (non-refundable); 2. Completion of secondary education (high school diploma or equivalent); 3. Math competency; 4. English language proficiency. The completion of admission requirements should be started early to be able to meet an applicant s expected term start date. (See the Recommended Application Completion Dates section). Applicants must complete all four admission requirements before being allowed to begin pursuing their chosen degree program at Ohio National University. SECONDARY EDUCATION EQUIVALENCY REQUIREMENT The secondary education requirement can be met by providing documentation of high school graduation or equivalence, or by providing documentation of completion of 12 or more transferrable credit hours from an accredited institution of higher education. This includes regionally accredited institutions of higher education, institutions recognized as candidates for accreditation, or institutions recognized by the Council of Higher Education Accreditation, United States Department of Education, Ministry of Education in a country, or equivalent government ministry in a particular country. Acceptable forms of documentation to satisfy this admission requirement must include one of the following: Official high school transcript or diploma listing the date of graduation; Official GED certificate; Official transcripts from colleges previously attended; Other as approved by Ohio National University staff. Applicants from the United States of America, or who live internationally but attended institutions within the United States of America, should send their credentials to:

11 11 Ohio National University ATTN: Transfer Credit Office 201 South Grant Avenue Columbus, Ohio, USA Applicants from outside the United States of America should send their credentials to World Education Services (WES) for verification and evaluation. For more information on WES, including the cost of a credential evaluation and documents required, please visit Applicants are responsible for all fees assessed by WES for credential evaluations. Applicants submitting documents to verify completion of secondary education can request a document-by-document evaluation. Undergraduate applicants seeking to transfer their credit from other post-secondary institutions, should request a course-by-course evaluation. MATH COMPETENCY REQUIREMENT The Math competency requirement can be satisfied by transferring in a course which is the minimum equivalent of Ohio National University s MT 155 (Fundamental Algebra). Applicants not transferring in this minimum requirement are required to demonstrate math competency by taking the ACCUPLACER* Math examination. This examination is a virtual (online) examination, administered year round, and consists of two parts -- Part 1 (Elementary Arithmetic) and Part 2 (Elementary Algebra). No fee is charged to the applicant to initially take this examination. The two parts of the ACCUPLACER Math examination are administered together -- the parts cannot be taken separately. If the applicant receives a score below 90 on Part 1 (Elementary Arithmetic), the exam ends and the applicant will not be accepted into Ohio National University at this time. Applicants are allowed to retake the examination after two weeks, with a $10 (USD) fee charged for the retake attempt. Applicants are encouraged to study relevant content before retaking the examination. Applicants scoring below a 90 on the retake of the Elementary Arithmetic exam will not be accepted into Ohio National University, will be provided resources for improving Math skills, and can begin the testing process again in two (2) months. Applicants passing Part 1 (Elementary Arithmetic) with a score of 90 or above will have achieved the minimum score required for admission into Ohio National University, and will automatically proceed to Part 2 (Elementary Algebra) of the examination. Applicants receiving below 112 on the Elementary Algebra exam will be required to take MT 155 (Fundamental Algebra) before taking any other Math courses with Ohio National University. Successful completion of MT 155 with a grade of D or better will satisfy the Math competency requirement for Ohio National University and applies toward a student s University Elective requirement. If the applicant receives a score of 112 or above on the Elementary Algebra exam, he/she will be exempt from taking MT 155, and will advance to the next Math course in his or her chosen program. * ACCUPLACER, owned and developed by the College Board, facilitates appropriate student assessment for thousands of institutions and is an industry standard in the field of placement. The College Board is a not-forprofit membership association whose mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity.

15 TRANSFER CREDIT GUIDELINES Applicants with course credit from institutions of higher education which are regionally accredited, accredited by organizations recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and/or the United States Department of Education, or institutions recognized as candidates for such accreditation, may be granted transfer credit for these courses. For coursework from non-accredited institutions, Ohio National University has established a formal review process to determine transferability of credit hours on a case-by-case basis. For applicants from the United States of America (or who attended schools within the United States of America), verification and evaluation of transfer credit will be done free of charge by Ohio National University faculty and staff. Documentation should be sent to: Ohio National University ATTN: Transfer Credit Office 201 South Grant Avenue Columbus, Ohio, USA Applicants who attended institutions outside the United States of America should send their documentation to World Education Services (WES) for verification and evaluation of credentials. Applicants requesting only secondary school credentials be evaluated can choose the Document-by-Document Report. Applicants requesting both secondary and post-secondary credentials be evaluated should choose the Course-by-Course Report. For more information on WES, including types of credential evaluation packages, fees, and requirements per country, please visit Applicants are responsible for all fees assessed by WES for transfer credit evaluations. Credit will be accepted for any college course completed with a grade of D or higher, including grades of Pass and examination credit, subject to GPA and course requirements pertaining to a student s degree program. D grades in major area courses are not permitted regardless of where the course is taken; such courses will only transfer as elective credit. Some majors (e.g., Information Technology) may have rules regarding the transferability of credits 10 years or older in some courses. Credit will be awarded based on subject matter, prerequisites, level, and laboratory requirements. Up to 84 hours of transfer credit may be used to complete an Ohio National University undergraduate program. Students will be assessed a one-time, nonrefundable flat rate of $300 (USD) for any credits transferred into Ohio National University. For students outside the United States of America, this fee is in addition to any evaluation fee charged by WES. Students completing coursework at Ohio National University should be aware that these courses and degree programs may not transfer in whole or in part into other institutions. The transfer of course/degree credit is determined by the receiving institution. PROFESSIONAL TRAINING Transfer credit may be awarded for courses or professional training offered through business and industry. For example, Ohio National University awards transfer credit for courses taken through the American Institute of Banking (AIB) or the Life Office Management Association (LOMA). Such credit will be awarded based on the recommendations found in The National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs (published by the American Council on Education), or The Directory of the National Program on Non-collegiate Sponsored Instruction. Official transcripts or original certificates of completion must be submitted for evaluation. Nontraditional certificates may also be reviewed for consideration of credit. In addition to official transcripts or original certificates, the student must provide a syllabus or workbook for the course, evidence of a test and the amount of time spent in class. Students interested in receiving credit for Professional Training should submit the above information through their student portal. 15

16 16 MILITARY TRAINING Transfer credit is also awarded for courses taken while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Such credit will be awarded based on the recommendations found in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. Original military certificates and appropriate military records must be submitted before military credit can be evaluated. Students who are, or have been, in the military will need to submit the following paperwork for possible transfer credit: The Joint Services Transcript (JST) is available for U.S. Army, Coast Guard, Navy, or Marines personnel with a Basic Active Service Date (BASD) on or after October 1, Any student meeting the above criteria must submit a JST for evaluation. The JST can be requested by visiting the Joint Services Transcript System website: https://jst.doded.mil/smart/signin.do. Active personnel who do not meet criteria listed above for a JST must submit a DD295. Separated or retired personnel who also do not meet the requirements must submit a DD214. U.S. Air Force personnel must submit a transcript from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) for a complete military evaluation. Transcripts can be requested by visiting the CCAF website: TRANSFER DEFICIENCIES All courses at Ohio National University are offered on a semester credit hour basis. Courses taken at institutions on a quarter hour system will not transfer as fully equivalent credit (1 quarter hour = 0.67 semester hours). A transfer deficiency occurs when a student transfers less than the required number of credit hours for each course. Students will not be permitted to transfer any specific General Education or Major Area courses that have deficiencies; such courses will only apply as University Elective credit, and courses will need to be retaken with Ohio National. Due to deficiencies, a student may be required to take additional University Elective credits in order to complete the total number of credit hours required to earn their degree. APPEALS PROCESS An applicant or student disagreeing with the application of transfer credit by the receiving institution has the right to appeal the decision. A course syllabus from the term in which the course was taken will be required for an appeal regarding specific course credit. All decisions for appeals are granted by the Ohio National University Dean of Academics, or his/her designee. Appeals can be submitted through the Ohio National student portal, and inquiries can be directed to All appeals must be filed within 30 days of the completed evaluation. After 30 days, all decisions on transfer credit awarded will be considered final. ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES Students should review the acceptance and application of any transfer credit with Ohio National Admissions staff. Transfer students must meet Ohio National University residency requirements (see General Degree and Residency Requirements ). If students repeat a course equivalent to one for which they have been granted transfer credit, the transfer credit will be removed. All transcripts and transfer evaluations sent to Ohio National by applicants or a credentialing service become the property of Ohio National University, and will not be released to a student or third party.

17 17 UNDERGRADUATE NON-DEGREE SEEKING STUDENTS Ohio National University encourages qualified individuals to further their education through academic experiences, and provides opportunity for students whose needs may not be best met by applying for admission to a degree-granting academic program. For students who have short-term, specific needs (such as focused skill, knowledge development or transfer credit), a non-degree seeking status is available with approval of Ohio National Admissions staff. Non-degree seeking status is designed for short-term, goal-oriented academic engagement only. All non-degree seeking applicants are required to pay the $50 (USD) non-refundable application fee, and satisfy the Math competency and English proficiency requirements. After receiving permission to enroll, non-degree seeking students may then register for specific courses of interest after demonstrating they are adequately prepared to take the desired course. Adequate preparation for a course at Ohio National University may be demonstrated through the completion of prerequisite courses, verification for which is required by documentation such as an unofficial transcript or resume. Waivers for courses must be approved by Ohio National University faculty. Students who are granted waivers of prerequisite requirements accept full responsibility for adequate preparation, and for their ability to perform the requirements of the course(s) in which they enroll.
